Poly Drive School 5

My kids have been at Poly for four years now. Kevin Croff is an excellent principal and truly sets the tone for the school. He wants the kids to succeed. He will take any opportunity possible to get to know the kids and their families. This includes: covering cross walk duties on Poly, walking the morning loop with the kids and mingling with the parents after school (in addition to all of his responsibilities as principal). The teachers are just as caring and compassionate. I would not want my children at any other elementary school in Billings.

I have two children that have had the privilege to attend Poly Drive Elementary and I am delighted with the school. It is everything you wish for in a school: caring and engaging teachers and principal's, a vibrant PTA, many extracurricular activities, a neighborhood that loves its kids. The only negative is that the kids have to go to middle school after 6th grade!

This is one FANTASTIC school. It is very well run and the principal exemplifies the kind of behavior she expects to see from her students. The academia is broad and thorough, with tutors readily available. The art program doesn't begin for the students until 3rd grade. They have art, but it's taught by their classroom teacher. Students have had their artwork showcased at several business around Billings. They have a vibrant music teacher who is involved with local theater/symphonic groups. Other activities include, Science Club, Choir, Band, Chess Club, PTA functions, and school-wide events. Parental involvment is the highest I've seen at the elementary school level. This is the third school my child's gone to (we're a military family) and it's going to be a tough one to beat.
